And I saw the WHITE IBIS there at dusk (5 pm), along with 5 GREAT EGRETS and 1 
Great Blue Heron.

I'm almost certain that WHITE IBIS had been recorded on the New London CBC (Dec. 
1979). Bob Dewire (Compiler) should be able to confirm this.

I also saw these tonight, for Stratford-Milford Count Week (at least): 
 BOAT-TAILED GRACKLE (20), BC Night-Heron, Common Raven.

12/19/2012 Stratford Warehouse Pond on Long Beach Blvd. I stopped by around 4:15 
p.m. and the Immature White Ibis was roosting on the fallen tree hanging into 
the water of the pond with 2 Great Egrets. This is now count period for the 
Stratford/Milford CBC, so it's officially on a New England Christmas Count, 
probably for the first time in count history.
